Hey. In 1979 The Malibu with a automatic came from the factory with TH200, TH250 and the TH350. All where short shaft units. All used the same cross member. The TH350 is the best trans for your Malibu. Doug

originally i was gonna run a glide but decided to put a turbo 350 in it with all the goodies for street cruising....I have a long tail turbo 350 but a friend does have a short tail ill go pick it up from him. Thanks guys
Hey. You could have your drive shaft shortened three inches for your TH350, Of course I assume yours has a six inch shaft. Doug

I see. Thats what mine was. Thanks. Since I already have my exhaust on the car(it was done 10 yrs ago) and it runs under the trans ,is there a way to strengthen up the mount?
